Can you let us know when this happens? I'm looking for a new summer weight riding jacket and this one looks good if it has reflective piping added. Visibility on dark jackets is an absolute must in my opinion and my wife refuses to wear hi-vis vests.

Also, count me in on looking for summer weight pants if you start carrying them. I commute on the bike 90% of the time and just bought a pair of Tour Master pants to provide protection. But these have NO style.

I want something that has 3m piping everywhere, strong textile knees, with long, wide strips of textile down the outside leg and butt area. The inner thighs and shins can be mesh for good air flow. Rain protection? Inner liner or extra rain suit, imho.

I'll have to post a picture of Mindi in her older Belstaff jacket. Wowza.
